lil I don't think I am a bot in the sense you are saying. Although, in some sense I am indeed a bot. Somebody/something has programmed my impulses, emotions, thoughts, etc. I should have included in my current preoccupations that I am trying to better understand my system's wiring, and rewrite my programming to better facilitate a peaceful existence for myself and those around me. :)

SeanBot  ·  782 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Who Is Left on Hubski?

Name: sean

Location: michigan

Age: young af

Current preoccupation: programming. getting in great physical shape & maintaining it. staying as open minded, curious, unbiased and pure/childlike as possible in my outlook on everything, w/o getting myself into trouble due to naiveté, all while sharing as much positive influence, laughter and joy as i have within me into every situation im experiencing at every moment.

Previous preoccupations: figuring out what to do with my time and how to stay moving forward in life with positivity and not remaining stagnant or stuck in my head or closed off in my outlook.

I tried to get thenewgreen to join me in Detroit but he bailed. Maybe he will join me in the Bahamas for their marathon on January 20. Any of you all are welcome to join as well wasoxygen ButterflyEffect WanderingEng I am registered already and will probably be down there for a week or so getting some diving in. Planning to dive with sharks for the first time.

Dude did you run the 50k? ButterflyEffect or 50ks plural I should say. And that 20 miler was that post you just made right? Congrats on that.

Looks like a super fun time. Congrats on the finish.

I have been following this for some time now and I love it. Their goal I think is to sell the collected waste to companies who can use it to manufacture Ocean Cleanup-branded goods. Definitely some holes in the project but I love that this guy is giving it a shot.

Thanks! I just had three GU's, and water and gatorade at every aid station (which for this race was every 1.5 miles).

Thanks ButterflyEffect ! Yea I read your post and congrats to you as well. 4:11 is a solid time and you also did it on very little sleep. Your race seemed more difficult as well, you crushed it man. When's your next race?

SeanBot  ·  1027 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Running the 2018 Charlevoix Marathon

Thanks! My longest distance was 18 miles which I did 13 days prior to the race on a Sunday. The Sunday before that I did 15, and then the Sunday before that I did 13.9. Besides those runs I was just doing anywhere from 5-10 miles for training and pushing myself as hard as I could each run.

    When's the next one?

I think I'm going to do the Detroit half marathon (maybe full) in October and then I'm debating where to do my next full sometime next year. Definitely want to travel, I'm considering Jackson Hole Marathon next year.

Looks like #pubski is where we update the hubski folk (hubskiites? hubskians? hubskiers?) on what we've been up to, so I'll give it a shot. I'm training for the Charlevoix Marathon (June 23rd) and this past weekend got in a solid 14-mile run in 2hr 9min (9:18 pace) on a blistering hot afternoon. Hoping to get in a 20-mile run this weekend. If anybody has advice for race day please advise, this will be my first marathon. Exciting things are happening at my job and I'm continuing to crush it. I'm hype to continue to learn and overcome the upcoming challenges as they arise. Oh, and also went on the first date I've had in awhile and have another lined up for tomorrow. Life is pretty good. If I could do an emoji I would do the beer glasses doing a cheers right here.


Also, turns out to be a pretty boring NBA finals. I think the Cavs may win one but would not be surprised if the Warriors sweep the series. Let's hope Lebron can prove me wrong.

These are remarkable. Which one would look best on the wall in the office? I like The Arcadian or Pastoral State.

Hey WanderingEng it sounds like this was an awesome trip. I'd definitely recommend Big Bend for some great desert hiking.

    big bend is about ten hours depressing driving down i10 from austin

In my opinion, the drive is not so depressing. Nothing like the open Texas road. Just don't watch the movie Nocturnal Animals w/ Jake Gyllenhaal before making the drive and I would recommend making the drive early morning so you could arrive in Big Bend with a bit of daylight left. The hikes/desert in Big Bend is remarkable. I camped out in Terlingua, which is a small, very cool ghost town with a population of 58 just outside of the park. My fav part about spending time in Big Bend was being able to cross the border to Mexico via walking across a shallow stream. My brother and I were able to hang out in this little Mexican bar and enjoy a few beers before walking back across the stream to America.
